Like New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami, Palm Springs evokes a certain style that’s all its own. From the 1930s through the 1970s, stars flocked en masse to the desert resort, filling it with the fabulous homes and boundary-pushing architecture that make the city a must-see today for anyone who appreciates vintage glamour.
